Introduce an organic accent with a timber-effect work area, which re-creates the look of natural materials for a premium feel. Then add extra warmth with pale floors with a wood grain finish, which add texture for visual interest. Create a linear feature by opting for a bank of wall units, which will draw the eye across the room. A builder can also conceal extraction equipment here for a clutter-free look. Complete this design with lighting under wall cupboards, which will illuminate work areas to make meal prep easy. A decorative trim in brushed aluminium will match other features, creating a cohesive scheme.
